3 cy Smith look-alike, Faroe islands

Post by Stefan » Sat Mar 17, 2018 7:48 pm

This herring gull was seen 5.2.2012 in Fuglafjordur, Faroe Islands by Silas Olofson. It has certainly some pro-smith features, such as barred upper tail coverts, relatively black (dark brown?) tail, dark hindneck and little contrast between inner and outer primaries. it could also be an herring gull that has some glaucous gull genes.
